As I am using vrops , is there any solution to monitor cisco MDS 9700 san switch with it ? I could not find anything in marketplace
Have a look at the SNMP management pack. That should give you some sort of data (I dont know the MDS 9700 that well).
That is correct . but want to know is that your means if I enable SNMP on device thus on the vrops through snmp pack can monitor all metrics such as cpu usage , port status , bandwidth , ........
I don't know. 🙂
That is something you have to test. Maybe there is a MIB file that you can upload to vROps which contains all that you are looking for. But like I said I dont own a Cisco MDS so can't really help you any further.
You can monitor basic information, CPU and Memory will be easy enough, ports, etc is a little harder.
Install the SNMP Management Pack, Configure SNMP on your Device
Add the Device in vRops
When Adding the device in vRops, there is a dropdown called MIB File. Add CISCO-PROCESS-MIB and CISCO-MEMORY-POOL.MIB
provide the credentials etc.
Once you have done that, create a policy and attach it, in the policy enable any values you see as appropriate and wait 🙂
I didnt get any value out of the CISCO-MEMORY-POOL.MIB so I downloaded another called CISO-ENHANCED-MEMPOOL-MIB.mib, uploaded this and enabled it.
as for monitoring bandwidth, i have had zero luck achieving this on cisco devices, the closest I have is the TVS management packs, these are very limited tho.
